The Cornish charity that has sent disaster relief to more than a million people worldwide has been hit by a cash blow.

One of Shelterbox's overseas backers has pulled funding.

Norway accounted for 0.5% of ShelterBox revenue.

But it has sparked concerns others could follow suit.

It comes after founder Tom Henderson was sacked.

Trust chairman Ian Munday tells the Westcountry Tonight they want to put that behind them. He said: "We're looking to deploy teams, even as we speak, out into some very challenging areas; Syria, the Lebanon, even into Iran and such like where this aid is so desperately needed for people that have everything.

"The remainder, and in particular, some of the strongly supportive affiliates, have quite clearly said that they will remain with us. That's really the heart and ethos of Shelterbox, and that's the business that we want to get on with, and put some of this stuff behind us."
